Prison party

MDOC issued the following statement.

Rat poison and liquor seized during shakedown involving another Parchman work camp

Rat poison, liquor in plastic water bottles, cigarette lighters and other contraband items were seized during a shakedown at three Parchman units, including another work camp, Thursday morning.

Officers conducted the shakedown at Unit 25, which is for inmates in the Pre-Release Program; Unit 28, which is a work camp; and Unit 31, which is for inmates with disabilities. Collectively, 477 inmates were housed in the three locations at the Mississippi State Penitentiary.

Most of the contraband, however, came from the work camp, where 191 offenders were assigned, when officers searched.

“It appears contraband is being trafficked through staff members, visitors and inmates while on work detail,” Commissioner Pelicia E. Hall said. “As part of Operation Zero Tolerance, the trafficking will be addressed. A preliminary investigation already has confirmed some sources.”

Seventy-five cigarette lighters were found in a pipe chase. They can go for $25 each. It appears that the rat poison confiscated is being mixed with drugs, such as marijuana, which could be toxic and lethal to offenders, if ingested.

One inmate was spooked as officers arrived early morning. He was observed running from a perimeter fence back into a building. Drugs and liquor were found on him during a subsequent search.

Other contraband items found include tobacco, cigarettes, Top paper, cellphones, cellphone chargers and related items.

“If we find an item that is not on an inmate’s allowable list, it will be confiscated,” Hall said.

Hall started the shakedowns in March to decrease the amount of contraband for the safety of staff and inmates. Last week, a significant amount of contraband was found at Unit 26, a work camp at Parchman.

Any facility in the prison system is subject to an unannounced visit under Operation Zero Tolerance, Hall said.

No shit? Or perhaps it's just falling from the sky.

I can understand some of the small turd shaped objects.
I have a hard time understanding the large objects that will not fit in a body opening.
We have too many crooks guarding the other crooks. The only thing I can see that will stop all of this is to pull all of the guards out, fire most of them, and station guards outside of the fence. Allow only prisoners on the inside, guards on the outside, and do not let them leave until they have served their time.
Anything found in the jail that is not supposed to be there should result in firing all of the guards and hiring new ones.

the little green balls is rat poison! So, getting sodomized was going to get payback.

I don't see how you fix this problem. It's been going on as long as there have been prisons.

No raises for guards in 20 years. They barely make minimum wage. No wonder they are on the take. Why risk your life when you can make more money cooperating with the tenants?

That's the same way our state wants to run Medicaid. Freeze hiring, run all the good people off and just let the patients and the hospitals rot while we claim to run a tight ship. The new brand of conservatism.

4:59, if they cannot perform the job they should go to work somewhere else.
I don't know of any job that is easier. All they have to do is keep the crooks on one side of the bars and everything and everyone else on the other side.
Even burger flipping takes more skill than that.

That's a lie, they've had several raises over the last 20 years - as many, if not more, than the other county employees. Cry me a river.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
